Nigeria is endowed with numerous Mineral Resources such as cassiterite, columbite, lead, Gold, Barite, gypsum, bitumen, coal etc. The processes of Nigeriaâs mineral development however, greatly affects the environment largely due to the fact that most of the mining activities are carried out by artisanal and small scale miners who lack appropriate technology and sufficient funds, and are reluctant to imbibe best practices in their operations. While the enormous Mineral deposits portray...

The petroleum industry in Nigeria is the largest industry and mean generator of Gross Domestic product (GDP) in the West African Nation. Inspite of the huge financial investment made by the Nigerian government in the oil and gas industry of the economy, it has not resulted in significant benefits for most Nigerians. The local content (LC) in the industry is still very low as over 60% of the major activities, e.g exploration, drilling, production, well intervention and service provision remain...

This paper examines the relevance of postmodernism to development in Africa. Data collected from secondary sources shows that, postmodernism as a critique of modernism is associated with knowledge which has become commoditised. Given the computerisation of society and the dominance of mass media, the true seat of power is where knowledge is located. The benefits to African countries are therefore minimal given the decline of state sovereignty in the postmodern world. African states therefore...

The investigation reveals the pattern of relationship between W/C and compressive strength. Two nominal mix proportions of 1:2:4 and 1:3:6 (Cement-Quarry sand- Gravel) showed that compressive strength decrease with increased W/C. The maximum strength of 23.71N/mm2 was achieved with mix proportion of 1:2:4 and W/C of 0.5 at 28days hydration. All...

ABSTRACT Reservoirs produced by a mechanism termed water drive. Often this is called natural water drive to distinguish it from artificial water drive that involves the injection of water into the formation. Hydrocarbon production from the reservoir and the subsequent pressure drop prompt a response from the aquifer to offset the pressure decline. This response comes in a form of water influx. This paper is to determine water influx in reservoir in Niger Delta using van everdingen-hurst...
